Staff friendly and wait staff on point.
Food usually better but under the circumstances understandable if things aren't as usual.
Example we ordered the cheese platter and it had a chunk of blue cheese and sliced yellow smoked american/guda so not sure that is a cheese platter and onion soup was not crispy cheese but runny so should have been heated more.
Usually when we go everything is delicious and we would go again and just hope things get back to their regular level of standards.
Thank you

We were seated upstairs in a banquet room while a wedding was going on. The young children attending the wedding were running all over the place. We were disappointed that my first Peddler’s Village experience wasn’t great. We wish we were seated downstairs in the pub area. The food was ok. Our server, Liz, was wonderful.

Hi Amy, I'm sorry to hear about your experience, but glad that Liz was a highlight. The 2nd floor has become a beloved romantic dining space that was born out of the pandemic. We had a pop-up wedding that day (if you can believe it). I'm thrilled that the Bride & Groom were able to celebrate, but I know that it was less than ideal for other guests. I hope that you will consider coming back. Please say hello if you do. Sincerely, Matt Bender

High points were the salads. Bothe the apple and wedge were good. My wife’s filet was perfect. My Beef burgundy had little to no mushroom and was not flavorful But what sticks in my mind was the lack of cleanliness. I had to have table rewashed and exchange my flatware for clean. And the restroom was disgusting

Ironman, thank you for your input. I'm glad that you and your wife enjoyed the meal. Cleanliness is a top priority and I'm disheartened to hear about your experience. We've implemented several changes in response to your feedback and will continue to focus on those improvements. Sincerely, Matt Bender

Service was slow. No bread served with dinner. Quality of the food was poor. Meat loaf tasteless. Apple pie was dark brown and pure jelled mush. Tasted horrible. Drinks with ginger ale were flat. One drink served not drinkable. Will not recommend to others.

Some dishes were good. Rest were just average. Service was like that of a diner. For such good ambience, it was somewhat sloppy in service. Needs refinement. Example: I ordered red zinfandel from the red wine list only to find it was white zinfandel misclassified. Mundane but common knowledge if you're offering wines for sale. Some of it seemed to be borne of covid cutbacks. So will try again when things are normal.

We have an exciting year ahead! Sincerely, Matt Bender

We’ve eaten at CNB several times over the years. Today was better in most ways than our most recent visit, and much better than expected given recent COVID issues.

Service was a little slow, but again was better than expected.

Beautiful restaurant with beautiful views. The service was friendly, but the staff is inexperienced and overworked.
The food is not good. It is a huge, busy tourist trap. If you go, keep it simple with a burger or sandwich.

My girlfriend and I had a very nice lunch at the Cock and Bull. I felt very safe eating there as the tables were at a distance and everyone was wearing their masks. I had the squash soup and it was very tasty. My girlfriend had the onion and she said that was good as well.
I have been coming to Peddlers Village for many years and it never disappoints. I would recommend the food at the Cock and Bull. I will be back.

We always enjoy going here for the ambience; we enjoy looking at the lights outside while eating. Our meals were good, but a little pricey for the size of the prime ribs we had. The service was a little off this time, had to ask where beverage was, no butter brought out with rolls, just little things like that. However, we have always had good service in the past.

We decided to have Thanksgiving here since our home is being remodeled. We are a family with 3 boys, ranging in ages 5-13. So we’re a little hesitant to bring them out as they can sometimes be a little rambunctious. We showed up 15 minutes before our reservation and we’re seated immediately, all seating was way more then 6 ft apart, which worked out good for us and our boys. They also made sure all patrons had face mask on and kept the food serving as safe as possible by not allowing guest to serve theirselves at the buffet tables. Very impressed. The atmosphere was very calm, low lit but still family like. Our waitress very fast and attentive, food was fabulous. Overall we are very pleased and have already talked about making this our Thanksgiving dinner tradition for years to come. After dinner we walked around the well lit village and took the scenic route home. This was our first experience outside of our home for Thanksgiving dinner and definitely was sold.

We went for the Thanksgiving buffet. Given the COVID restrictions I’d say they did an excellent job. The servers and hosts were the consummate professionals. The buffet dinner was wonderful. There was a huge selection. The food was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Since it was a buffet it was very easy to overeat. The desserts lacked something. They were kind of generic. The kind of pies and cakes you could purchase at your local supermarket. Nothing special, but okay. A little bit of a let down after the amazing dinner. We had a spiked hot cocoa with desert that was watered down and not flavored well at all. The waitress offered us a different beverage for no additional charge. The other cocktails we had with dinner were very good. Otherwise it’s a beautiful place with great ambiance. We were sat by the windows overlooking the lights in the courtyard of Peddlers Village. So, that was perfect for a holiday dinner. There were a lot of families there with too many children for my liking. Then again one crying baby is too much for my liking, but I’m a childless mild aged person, so I lack that certain empathy for children that most people have. In all honesty the kids were pretty well behaved.

Food was terrific, and at least one classic dish we've enjoyed in the past has been improved upon (Beef Burgundy). Timely, attentive and friendly service. We (three of us) felt very comfortable with the Covid-19 precautions. With fewer tables — and spaced out — it was noticeably quieter than normal. Great views of the Christmas lights. Love the crab cakes — in appetizer, sandwich and entree form.
